  1. Hi Katie,
    Really enjoyed this week’s podcast. About straight lines on the Powerquilter, I have been using the Line Tamer. It looks like a long U shape with a 1/2 inch slot down the middle for the hopping foot. It works really well for stitch in the ditch or other straight lines. I got mine from Nancy’s. This site has a good explanation.

    • Ooo thank you Cheryl! I will look into getting that ruler. My Versa Tool works okay but the straight line guide isn’t super long so you have to adjust a lot. The Line Tamer looks much better for that.

  2. I was going to suggest the Line Tamer, too. http://www.fourpawsquilting.com/pages/template.html

    I find that it helps when stitching in the ditch or any straight line quilting on my Sweet 16. I enjoy your podcast!
